* For all of the frustrated ones: there's a video walkthrough thread at We Create Stuff > Portal: TFV's forum, and some community help. Good luck :)

We started working on this project a couple of months ago, and now, it is finally done. Lately we've been working on this project none stop, acknowledging if we release it after the real Portal - we fail, and our test will be terminated ( ;). So yes, the last piece of code of this game was programed just a couple of minutes ago. Don't worry - those minutes were on bugs!

Portal: The Flash Version includes over 40 challenging, portals thinking levels, which features almost every feature the real game does, in 2d - energy balls, cubes, turrets and even the famous crusher from the trailer. The game also includes a console to mess around with after finishing the game, or just being frustrated by thinking with portals (Commands are posted in our forums)

Left mouse button - launch a portal.
A W D - movement
Q - launch a blue portal.
E - launch a yellow portal.
R - Close both portals.
F - pick up an object.
~ - open up console (enable through the options)
O - quick quality adjust.
Esc/P - pause game.

Version history:

The game really is heavy on levels 30 and up. We did our best to optimize it, but if you still have a low frame rate simply change your quality and effect settings.

If you find any bugs, please report.

Well "ported" game.

Great "conversion" of PORTAL. Played and love the original as well as your version. In some levels this version was even more fun.

A few bugs I found:
Level 20: when I almost finished the game, I used the portals. I ended up high and started falling. Instead of landing on the platform, my character just fell through.
Level (??): the energy ball was about to move through the portals and I removed both portals. The energy ball got stuck in the wall.
Level 39: I finished the game and ran through the exit door but ended up at the beginning.
- Hope this helps.

I will probably never get around to purchasing The Orange Box (I can't play M-rated games, and my PC sucks) so THANK YOU for translating this experience to me. PLEASE MAKE A LEVEL EDITOR VERSION!!! And I do wish you could save your game. But you're quickly on your way to being an awesome flash artist by ripping off Valve. Thank you.

Simply Amazing

This, just like valves game, is possibly one of, if not, the greatest action/puzzle games ever created. It is up there with the zelda series only of course completely different. I have officially beat all 40 levels and have enjoyed my cake. Although there are a few glitches and rough spots at times this is a fantastic game. What is even more impressive is that you started and probably finished this game before ever playing valve's portal. I commend you for your efforts and give you all the kudos and props possible. This is by far one of the greatest flash games ever. You have successfully created a 2D adaption of Valves Portal and I thank you for all of your work. It has been a truly amazing experience. I can't wait to see more from you.
